Rivers, Edens, Empires: Lewis & Clark and the Revealing of America
Looks at historical maps, relations with Indians, and expedition artifacts -- the blunderbuss, Jefferson's secret message to Congress, his instructions for Meriwether Lewis, and speeches.

Writing and Experience: Crossing Borders, Fall 2010
In this era of globalization, many of us have multi- or bi-cultural, multilingual or bilingual backgrounds, and even if we don't have such a background, we need urgently to understand the experiences of people who do.
